Well Joe, you silly elitist twit, it IS a class conflict, and speaking out loudly against corporate fraud and corruption could be the best possible way for Democrats to re-take the White House. And by the way Joe, remind us why you are a Democrat since you are more conservative than most Republicans?
Bob, the sad fact is that you’re absolutely right – this is what the Dems should be doing. But also I think in taking this tack, the Democrats expose themselves incredibly (as noted in my post below). I’m hard-pressed to imagine that we could find a Democrat who isn’t vulnerable enough (remember that we don’t need parity in corruption…a mere stain will do)to this issue to make it suicidal gesture, and as a consequence I think we’ll get a lot of posturing over arcane accounting and administrative trivia which will allow the Dems to take Bush on (“what did he know and when did he know it?” type stuff) without threatening their own access to the private jets.
